DAILY MITZVAH (Maimonides): Tuesday, December 20, 2005


Kislev 19, 5766 * December 20, 2005

D A I L Y M I T Z V A H (M A I M O N I D E S )

Today's Mitzvot (Day 109 of 339):

Positive Mitzvah 94

Positive Mitzvah 94: Keeping a Vow

-Deuteronomy 23:24 "The statements of your lips you shall keep
and perform"

Chani promised to take her younger sisters out to the park one Sunday
afternoon. Later, her friend called and invited her to come over. She
told her sisters that she would take them out the following week.

"But you promised," complained Mimi.
"You said you would," argued Bassie.
"You have to keep your word," Rina told Chani angrily.

Keeping our word is not just a good thing to do. The Torah commands
us to fulfill obligations we have taken upon ourselves.

Whether a promise, a vow, or a plan to bring a sacrifice - we must
make sure that it gets done.
